Song of the Day: Guy “Groove Me (Buscrates Funk Hop Swing Remix)”
I’m a New Jack Swing fiend and I have no shame.
This sub-genre of R&B innovated by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and perfected by Teddy Riley in the late ’80s gifted the world with some of the most infectious dance music that I can deploy from my crates. Since everything goes in 20 year cycles, only recently has a new generation started to mine the style for inspiration after it went through an un-hip period. But I never abandoned it. I can acknowledge that I may be partially motivated by nostalgia for the music of my teens, and all of the themes (and some of the vocals) haven’t quite aged that well. But as sheer kinetic music, new jack swing demands that you sweat. BusCrates 16-Bit Ensemble have delivered a quality update of “Groove Me” that guarantees just that.
